We celebrate a day called Valentines Day, where we give out cards of endearment to our loved ones, and chocolates, or even better sometimes diamonds. There will be a lot of roses sent today. Children even exchange cards at school with each other. Everyone is sharing the love. When do we share the love with our Savior? The one who died on the cross for all of us. The one who loved us so much that He would be mocked and crucified and endure it all so that not one of us should perish, but that we would all one day live with Him and the Father in Eternity.
Have you accepted His valentine to you? Have you accepted the greatest gift of love ever given? No one will ever or possibly could ever love you as much as He does. No, not even your spouses. Not even that new love you just found and are on cloud 9 with. No mothers, you can not even love your children with the love that Jesus loves you with.
These scriptures will tell you how Jesus died for you because of His great love for you. Would you die this death for a complete stranger?
Mark....15 v 17-20.....And they clothed Him with purple; and they twisted a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and began to salute Him, 'Hail King of the Jews!" Then they struck Him on the head with a reed and spat on Him; and bowing the knee, they worshiped Him. And when they mocked Him, they took off the purple, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.?.....
That is the soft picture painted for you. The picture of Jesus death is a million times worse than this one painted here. What He endured for you is more than most can bear to watch, even those who don't believe.
This Valentines day, have a movie night with your loved one or your family and watch the greatest love story ever made. THE PASSION OF CHRIST. This will show you what love really is all about. An unconditional love that He wants to share with you. A love so great, you will never want to leave it, as it will never leave you.
John 3:16.....For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever shall believe in HIM shall not perish but have everlasting life.....
